Hankasalmi, where Revontuli Resort is located, is the darkest place of the whole Southern Finland – perfect for spotting the Northern Lights! Due to this, Hankasalmi is also an important place for worldwide Northern Lights research. Amateur scientists have been making internationally significant Aurora Borealis research in the area for over 40 years. For the first ones in the world, they are just about to start studying, whether the sounds of the Northern Lights are real or not. So far it is still a mystery…

During this holiday, you will meet one of the scientists in Hankasalmi Observatory and learn many interesting facts and fictions about the Aurora Borealis. You will hear mystical stories and myths of the phenomenon of the Northern Lights told by the campfire. On a snowshoe walk in the complete darkness, outside of all the light pollution, the odds to see Northern Lights grow vastly – the lucky ones may capture this miracle as a memory of a lifetime…
